Eddie Hall continues to transition into bodybuilding and shared his most recent back workout.
Eddie Hall has made waves wherever he has gone over the course of his career. Now, he has his sights set on a new goal heading into 2023. Hall shared his plans to begin training as a bodybuilder and hopes to be stage-ready by late 2024 early in January.
In January, Hall shared his current weight of 163kg (360lb). This allowed him to be first person to deadlift 500kg (1,102.3lb) in 2016. The very next year, he was crowned champion of the World’s Strongest Man event and solidified his spot as one of the best in Strongman.
Hall continues to transition into bodybuilding and recently shared a back workout that is meant to add incredible size.
Eddie Hall’s Back Workout
- Superset: Lat Pulldown & Plate Loaded Lat Pulldown – 3 sets, 10 reps
- Superset: Plate Loaded Row & Seated Row – 3 sets, 12 reps
- Hammer Curls – 4 sets, 12-14 reps, final drop set
Eddie Hall began the workout with deadlifts. He did not specify how many sets or reps he did but it began with a warmup set followed by working. Hall, who became the first person to deadlift 500kg, explained that he did not want to go too heavy to start.
“For deadlifts, you don’t want to go too heavy. It’s more about time under tension.”
The workout continued with two supersets. First, Hall took down lat pulldowns and plate-loaded lat pulldowns. He completed three reps of 10 on each machine. During his sets on the plate-loaded machine, Hall alternated arms.
The next superset was plate-loaded rows and seated rows. This is another set that builds size and width in the back and lats. While completing 3 sets of 12 reps, Hall urged viewers to complete slow reps because it allows more control.
The finisher of the workout consisted of hammer curls. Hall opted to burn the bicep out before ending his workout. He completed four sets of 12-15 reps of alternating hammer curls, with the final set being a drop set. Again, Hall completed slow reps to make sure there was tension on the muscles.
